Textiles - Print

Since the beginning of time plants have provided us with food, shelter and medicine as well as being an age-old source of inspiration in art and design due to our human need to be close to nature, keeping the life and energy of plants painted hundreds of years ago alive to this day. Over time, however, we have moved away from a life surrounded by nature for lives in built up areas and busy cities, we find ourselves living in smaller spaces and with less access to the outdoors, creating a detachment from the natural world. This has led to a separation from the benefits of nature, such as improving mood and enhancing wellbeing. Studies have found, however, that having plants in your home can help to reduce stress and even increase productivity and creativity. I aim to capture some of these benefits through design. I have explored a range of drawing and mark making approaches to translate the qualities of various plants and create a hand drawn interpretation of their character. I want to bring the energy and positive impact plants provide into the home environment. I have done this by creating a series of digital prints for home interiors inspired by the playful, vibrant colours, pattern and textures found within plant life. Keeping house plants has had a revival in recent years and I would love to see my designs combined with real plants to create healthy spaces that bring the outdoors in and help people reconnect with nature.
